Nintendo Announces Pokémon Sword And Shield For Switch

Recommended Posts

Generation eight of Pokémon is officially here, as this morning Nintendo announced Pokémon Sword and Shield, to release this fall on the Switch. The pair of games are three-dimensional and cel-shaded.

 

 

Pokémon Sword and Shield will be the first mainline games in the series to appear on a home console, they’ll take place in a new region (“Galar”), with a whole bunch of new Pokémon, including three starters that Nintendo showed off in a trailer this morning: Grookey, Scorbunny, and Sobble.

The previous generation of monster-collecting games, gen seven, began with Pokémon Sun and Moon on the 3DS in 2016. Now, three years later, it’s time for the next one.

Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield will be set in Galar, an expansive region with many environments—idyllic countryside, contemporary cities, thick forests, and craggy, snow-covered mountains. The people and Pokémon live together in this region, and they’ve worked together to develop the industries here.

You’ll visit the various Gyms in the Galar region, aiming for the enviable and admirable title of Champion!

ALL OF MY YES.

 

GYMS ARE BACK AND I COULDN'T BE HAPPIER.

 

NO ONE LIKED YOU ANYWAY TRIALS. GO AWAY FOREVER.

 

With that out of the way...

 

I'm a Final Fantasy fan so... Sword all the way. 😍

 

My choice for the starter will likely either be the fire one or water one. 😃

 

Either way... in case you couldn't already tell... I'm looking forward to this and it's already better than Gen 7 with Gyms back. 😁

Is it just me or does Scorbunny ressemble Chimchar? I mean this particular "animation" of him is exactly the same as Chimchar's.

I can't say that I'm impressed with the starter pokemon, but the rest of it looks good even though I haven't played anything since Black and White.

I haven't played since Crystal on the GBC. They just keep adding more Pokemon and more locations and imo the world has become too convoluted. "Gotta collect em all" seems like an impossible task when there is something like a couple thousand and most of them pale in comparison to the uniqueness of the originals. It's kind of like they ran out of ideas and just toss random animals together with goofy names. For this reason I'd prefer some full-on 3D HD remake of Johto and Kanto (Red, Yellow, Blue, Gold, Silver, Crystal) for the Switch than a brand new gen. But that's probably me just being old school.

I hope there's more EEVEE evolutions.

What types don't have an Eevee evolution? Bug, Dragon, Flying, Fighting, Ghost, Ground, Poison, Rock, and Steel?

 

Would be something if we eventually have an evolution for every type. We've already got Normal (Eevee), Fire (Flareon), Electric (Jolteon), Water (Vaporeon), Psychic (Espeon), Dark (Umbreon), Grass (Leafeon), Ice (Glaceon), and Fairy (Sylveon).

 

I'm loving the open world and Pokemon in plain sight rather than random encounters, but I'm not digging the whole giant Pokemon Dynamax gig.

I've never played any of the original games before, but judging from what I've seen thanks to Pokemon Origins and Generations, it's definitely superior.

 

I am also hoping for an eventual 3D HD remake, once they ditch the current art style in favor of something more realistic anime style.
